On August 28, 2022, in Utica, New York, the Attorney General's office of Letitia James paid out over $21,000 in gift cards for 3D printed "ghost guns". The guns were printed by an anonymous entrepreneur on a $200 printer he received for Christmas.

Letitia James took credit for the "buyback" of "ghost guns" at Utica. "Buyback" is an Orwellian term. The guns which are turned in were never owned by the governmnt. The AG did not mention the mass purchase of 3D printed guns, although they mentioned 177 "ghost guns". From the

"Gun buybacks are a fantastic way of showing, number one, that your policies don't work, and, number 2, you're creating perverse demand. You're causing people to show up to these events, and, they don't actually reduce crime whatsoever."

The AG said the event netted 177 "ghost guns". It appears more than one "Kem" utilized the event to obtain some of the valuta Letitia James was handing out. .....
